Investors In Young People Event

Lochbroom Woodfuels proudly received their award from Investors in Young people on Monday 22nd June, the plaque was presented to the group as they have been recognised for attracting and recruiting young people. To achieve this award the Lochbroom Woodfuels team have worked very hard to meet the framework guidelines of Supporting, guiding, developing and retaining young people. This is a great achievement and is also great for the community with plenty of young people looking for work/work experience, we would like to think this has encouraged other local companies and businesses to employ young people.

The event started with a welcome talk from Helen then it was passed on to IIYP to explain what they do and their aims. Euan and Lindsey were then presented with the plaque for the team and Helen did a final talk. After this everyone helped themselves to lovely sandwiches made by West Coast Deli, home-made baking and drinks. The team all enjoyed the afternoon and hope everyone who joined them did too!
